11/11/2021 Tip: Core Values

Today’s Quote

“The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out.”
~Dee Hock


Today’s Tip

Great leaders create the core values and philosophy of the business, grounded in their own values and passion. It’s up to you to be consistent with regards to your company’s values, so that it becomes “the way we do it” in your business.

For example, Zappos original CEO, the late Tony Hsieh attributed much of his company’s success to the 10 core values he helped establish:

  1. Deliver WOW Through Service
  2. Embrace and Drive Change
  3. Create Fun and A Little Weirdness
  4. Be Adventurous, Creative, and Open-Minded
  5. Pursue Growth and Learning
  6. Build Open and Honest Relationships With Communication
  7. Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit
  8. Do More With Less
  9. Be Passionate and Determined
  10. Be Humble

Do you have core values in your company? Do each of your employees know them?

If not, work on documenting your core values today.
